Learn About Healthy Snacks: This Video Teaches Kids the Importance of Choosing Healthy Snacks and Gives Examples of Healthy Snacks

Kids often come home famished and can turn straight for the chips and soda. In this lively, fun video two girls discuss healthy snacks such as a smoothie from milk, strawberries and spinach as a pre-soccer practice pick-me-up vs. cola and chips. The younger student thinks about what she needs from a snack to sustain her and how what she eats will impact her performance. 

The video ends with a quick summary of other snack ideas such as “ants on a log” (celery and peanut butter) and other fun snack ideas for kids. This is a great video for a teacher lesson plan to teaching nutrition to children, especially healthy snacks.
